Molasses Spill
Various kinds of dead marine life collected by employees from the PENCO Pacific Environmental Corporation can been seen in this barrel on the dock fronting the La Mariana Sailing Club in Keehi Lagoon Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, in Honolulu. A pipe maintained by Matson Navigation Co. at pier 52 cracked and leaked about 233,000 gallons of molasses into the harbor. The molasses spill is being blamed for the killing of marine life at Keehi Lagoon which is located near the Honolulu Harbor. The cracked pipe has been repaired and the molasses leak stopped.
